Imagine being whisked into the heart of the Denali wilderness aboard a glass-domed, environmentally controlled, Alaska Jetboat Safari. Stop imagining and start planning with Alaska Adventure Unlimited!
Alaska is adventure just waiting to happen – all it needs is for you to come and have it. That’s what Alaska Adventure Unlimited is all about! Our Alaska Jetboat Safari is just one of the many different experiences our tours provide.
An Alaska Jetboat Safari is a 2 hour trip, up the Susitna River from Talkeetna, into Alaska’s timeless and untamed Denali wilderness. You’ll marvel at the Mt McKinley backdrop and catch glimpses of iconic wildlife – magnificent bald eagles and ever-diligent beavers.
Your twenty-mile river journey will occur with you relaxing warm, dry, and secure under the canopy of the fifty-two passenger “Talkeetna Queen:” one of the most technologically advanced river jetboats in Alaska, designed to safely navigate waters previously considered inaccessible.
During the journey, your guide will tell you about the area, its rivers, mountains, flora, fauna, and history. With every turn of the river you will see and learn more about the splendor of Denali.
Once landed, your Alaska Jetboat Safari turns into a leisurely, quarter-mile nature walk. Arriving at a Dena’ina Indian encampment – the earliest native settlers – you’ll learn about the plants used by them for cooking and medicines. Then you’ll visit an authentic trapper’s cabin, furnished as it once would have been, and discover how trappers survived in the Alaskan “bush” during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
Best of all, during your Alaska Jetboat Safari you’ll be able to revel in the unforgettable and unique splendor of Denali State Park!
